Somehow that's probably a kind of dancing bear mental image best left alone.
There's no denying, though, that what Madsen has done deserves some sort of mention. And we're not talking just the Baylor game, but over his career.
The guy has played in 42 games and started every one of them. Smith has taken what, perhaps 2,000 snaps in his career? Almost all of them have come from Madsen.
He and Eric Jobe rotated between center and guard when Madsen was a redshirt freshman and Smith, then the backup to Jarrett Brown, usually had Madsen in front of him that year. Over the next two years and this one, only when Madsen missed the Champs Sports Bowl game against N.C. State did Smith have another regular snapper.
"And I think Braun might have done it a few times when I had to sit out a play and then I was out at the end of the Orange Bowl when Geno was still in there,'' Madsen said. "But that's about it.''
There is a lot to be said for that consistency.
"That's one thing that gets overlooked when it comes to Geno's play,'' Holgorsen said. "Who's been snapping the ball to Geno since Geno has been here? It's been Joey. [Braun] is right there, too. There's a level of comfort that exists.
"To have a consistent center-quarterback exchange is something that's often overlooked.''
And it has been consistent. When was the last time anyone saw Smith scooping a snap off the ground or leaping to grab one? There haven't been many.
Shoot, you want to talk completion percentage? Smith's is "only'' 83.4 percent this season.
"I haven't had any incompletions and no interceptions,'' Madsen said. "Of course, I don't have any touchdowns, either.''
No, but he's helped out on a ton, which probably deserves a bit of mention for the only guy on the team who touches the football as much as Smith.
"I took some criticism from some people for naming him the offensive champion, but those plays never get started without a center that does everything right,'' Holgorsen said "You can delete a few of those touchdowns or rushing yards if the center isn't doing his job. It wasn't just the center, though. The whole offensive line played well. Joey graded out the best out of all them, so he's the one that earned that award.''
And he'll be happy to live with that T-shirt and a few audible groans.
